Whole Site Delivery and Amazon S3
Whole Site Delivery
There is a great deal of buzz about a service known as “whole site delivery” provided by content delivery networks. The way whole site delivery works, is by caching all of your site’s assets on servers all over the globe as soon as they have been accessed from the origin server. Once this occurs, any user in a particular region can access the files without having to send a request to the origin server, which may be halfway across the world. This helps to eliminate the amount of traffic that your origin server sees, which can be quite beneficial.
